Well since I already admitted shoplifting from Woolworth's I might as well admit the pop bottles i turned in for the 2 or 5 cent deposit were not, strictly speaking, found in parks and roadsides...most of them came from a pop machine in the basement of a nearby hospital with a big rack along the side for empties....my friend Ken Fuller ( a gentile, if you must know....leading an innocent Jew down the path of crime, of course), and I figured out that when no one was watching we could walk off with all the deposit bottles and convey them to the nearby grocery store for cold, hard cash....not a thought for the poor machine operator and his starving children.....maybe it was karma that found me investing some of this ill gotten bhunda in a Monkees rip-off album.
Brilliant story. I'm surprised you're not President or The Ruler of The Queen's Navy with a background like that.
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.
AAAAAAAAAARGHHHH....I bought that album...with very, very hard earned pop-bottle deposit money...convinced i had found a good deal...it cost $1.99 at the local 7-11 store and the real Monkeee's second album cost $3.99 at the record store. Took it home IT WASN'T THE MONKEES...just a crappy band doing covers of Monkee songs from the first two albums and the TV show. The 7-11 would not give me my money back and I'm still MAD.
Oh dear! I think we've all been there. Can anyone remember the Embassy records at Woolworths? Some of the cover artists weren't too bad while others were awful.
Only ever bought a couple because the father of one of my friends played on them. He never received much in royalties and became a plumber and decorator.
Now that's rock 'n' roll.
In most cases, my favorite Jethro Tull songs will be determined by how I feel about them as live performance songs, not by the recorded identity.
Dont know - it's not in my collection ;D I think they were on the same record label, Tavern, as other cover bands of that ilk like the more succcessful Barron Knights. Music that you had to sit and listen to with your parents on 60's "Entertainment" shows... No wonder we rebelled
Some three hundred and ninety four thousand hours ( give or take) have come and gone
